Read through the most famous quotes by topic #limitation

Now as I climb this mountain, from the top of which I shall see Africa, my mind is printed with brown-paper parcels and your faces. I have been stained by you and corrupted.

Most people are not really free. They are confined by the niche in the world that they carve out for themselves. They limit themselves to fewer possibilities by the narrowness of their vision.

They say to think within the box, but it's funny how those in the box never go anywhere, where those outside it, get to see the world.
